Second BBJ 747-8 delivered by Lufthansa Technik
Lufthansa Technik (LHT) has equipped its second Boeing Business Jet 747-8 and shipped it to an unknown client, and is now finishing its third example for the large space area. "For us, the shipment of this second 747-8 is another landmark in the VVIP completion of wide-body aircraft," says Walter Heerdt, LHT's VIP and Executive Jet Solution Vice President. 20,000 passengers will be transported to the new facility in the near future.
"He added, "We have supplied an individual, ultra-modern airplane with high-quality material that meets the highest standards of exclusive design and comforts. LHT, based in Hamburg, Germany, is the most productive supplier of VIP 747s, with 14 different version of the plane having been finished and shipped. The latest addition to this airplane includes new functions in its 440m (4,740ft²) large cab, says LHT.
"It was also the first use [ during the finishing process] of a material that presented a great challenge to the engineers," says LHT. Since its foundation in 1994, the firm has finished and rebuilt more than 100 V.I.P. planes. Boeing, for its part, has supplied 213 narrow-body and wide-body 213 commercial jet helicopters since its corporate jet affiliate was founded 20 years ago.
By 2015, the airline had 11 planes in execution centers, which in turn had eight finished model airplanes shipped to clients - five Boeing 737 and three BBJ 747-8s. What is going on around "Lufthansa Technik AG"?
